Walk the neighborhood where the school is located
Those famous Carnival performances, with the perfectly-timed choreography and exquisite costumes, are not improvised – the teams have to rehearse ahead of time! And fortunately for you, the samba schools where they practice are open to the public. At the schools, teams don their glamorous costumes, blast loud and energetic music, and serve drinks to make the rehearsal a party for everyone to enjoy. On this tour, you will get to see the neighborhoods that house the samba schools and watch a real rehearsal.
